Who doesn’t love a good stuffed pepper recipe? They’re simple to make with affordable ingredients, and they come together with just a little bit of prep work. They’re also easy to make with mix and match ingredients for easy, ‘cleaning out the fridge’ nights. You don’t have to make an involved dish for a satisfying dinner when it comes to stuffed peppers, incorporating everything into one neatly packaged vessel for consumption.
We like making big batches and freezing some for later, as they heat up really nicely in the oven. We also love the idea of making them in the Instant Pot, all of the flavours perfectly melding together, evenly cooked all the way throughout. There are quite a few different options and techniques, so we’re sharing our favourite Instant Pot stuffed peppers.
